Why use a Harness with your Knee Brace?

 

Using a harness and connection belt in combination with a knee brace can provide extra support and protection for dogs with knee joint problems such as cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) tears or degenerative joint disease (DJD).

A harness distributes the load evenly across the dog's body, reducing the stress on any one joint or limb. A connection belt provides additional support to the dog's hindquarters, which are responsible for the majority of a dog's weight-bearing activity. Connecting the connection belt with the knee brace and harness allows the belt to take some of the load off the hind legs and reduce stress on the knee joints.

A knee brace provides extra support and stability to the knee joint itself, reducing the risk of further injury and improving the overall health of the joint. When measuring for the correct size and fit, it is important to choose a brace that will stay in place when the dog is running or engaging in other activities.

It is important to consult with a veterinarian or a professional dog trainer before using any of these devices, as they can recommend the best kind of brace or harness for your dog depending on their specific needs and condition. They can also help ensure that the knee brace stays in place while the dog is running or engaging in other activities.

In summary, using a harness and connection belt in combination with a knee brace can be an effective way to support and protect the knee joints of dogs. Connecting the connection belt with the knee brace and harness allows the belt to take some of the load off the hind legs and reduce stress on the knee joints while the knee brace provides extra support and stability to the joint. It is important to consult with a professional and choose a brace that will stay in place when the dog is running or engaging in other activities.
